Lamborghini just broke the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record at the 12.8-mile track with their brand new Aventador SVJ. The supercar crossed the one-lap mark in 6:44.97 seconds, making it the fastest production car to ever do a lap there. A Porsche 911 GT2 RS in September 2017 set the previous record of 6:47.3. The SVJ is a new high-performance version of the Aventador supercar – the car wore camouflage because the model hasn’t actually been revealed to the public yet.

Even though the SVJ now holds the record for production cars at the Nürburgring, it did not beat the overall record. Porsche showed up a few weeks ago with a modified version of its 919 hybrid race car. The vehicle lapped the track in 5:19.55, beating the previous record which had stood for 35 years by 51.58 seconds.
